Why run for office?...
A Message From Derek LaMontagne
If you are asking yourself “why does he want to be mayor of Port Orange, anyway?” the answer is simple — I don’t! That is, I wish I did not have to, but based on my decade-long observation of the city and the atrocities it has committed, I feel it is my duty to stand up for what is right so that the unscrupulous and immoral practices I have seen come to an end. I have always felt the need to serve my community, and through careful study have informed myself of the role of the job. I am no politician, but I am willing to do what it takes to protect what I love. The recent and current City Councils has already taken so much from so many of us, I believe it is time to restore our quality of life and to give power back to the people. I hope you can help me do this, as I want to hear your ideas at all times, and promise to be responsive to the people I represent, people like you. Please let me know if there are any issues that you feel should be addressed by the city, and I’ll make it happen.
I’m looking forward to listening to you.
